How about a Christmas story?

When Abel Towers-Zeller wrote to Santa this year, a very important request topped his list: He wished for his daddy — Army Pvt. Timothy Zeller — to be with him on Christmas.

During a December 17th assembly at Abel’s school in Old Bridge, New Jersey, something amazing happened.

Timothy — who’d been gone since July — surprised his son with a fulfillment of that most universal of Christmas hopes: “I’ll be Home.”

Speaking on Fox & Friends Monday, Pvt. Zeller recounted the moment Abel saw him:

“His jaw just dropped when he finally realized it was me walking into the gym.”
